March Memories

Spring is just around the corner. We are all looking forward to longer days with sunshine and warmer temperatures. During the month of March, the Johnson Center has gone to BIRDS! We have been celebrating birds all month. It has been so interesting learning about all the different varieties of birds. There were fabulous pictures of birds around the center as well. As you enter Fellowship Hall you can see the bird crafts that our participants created. Don't forget to look at the beautiful bird houses in our lobby.

St. Patrick's Day was a true Irish celebration. We ate Irish soda bread and listened to Irish music. So many of us wore green and the day was topped off with a lunch of corned beef and cabbage. What a fun day! Kent Denver School performed for usthis month and they were teriffic. It was such a joy to hear the beautiful voices of the young people. We look forward to having them again. We are so fortunate that the schools take the time to come to the center.

We have been doing YOGA with Patty once a month. Why do we do yoga? It increases circulation, promotes flexibility, and provides us with strength and better balance. We hope to continue this activity on a regular basis. With the warmer weather coming we look forward to planting the garden a taking nice long walks outside.
